Jettomero: Hero of the Universe Review - Gentle Giant

Jettomero: Hero of the Universe

The PS4 has opened the floodgates for new and innovative titles. As independent developers are free to bring their ideas to console, we’re seeing a lot of games that offer unique experiences. Jettomero: Hero of the Universe is an explorative game with bouts of action where you play as a sentient robot in a search for answers about who is he and where he came from.

Still Time Review - Déjà vu

Still Time

Time travel is one of the most difficult things to get right in a game or movie. It's such a broad concept with so many caveats, that it's easy to go overboard and find yourself full of plot holes or whacky ideas.

The Final Station Review - Running on Time

The Final Station

If you look at a lot of the post-apocalyptic horror games and movies these days, you'll find that they are all pretty static. Many of them tend to take place in one location where survivors are seeking to survive. Very few of them go on a journey, but there are exceptions to the rule. The Final Station is one such example of a story that's going places, quite literally in fact.

Toren Review - A Shaky Climb

It’s not every day that you hear about a game that was funded by the government, but that’s just the origin story of the recently released indie title Toren on the PC and PS4. Yep, the Brazilian government wants to support the growing game development community, so they decided to shell out the cash for indie developer Swordtales to bring their vision to life. So, was this a smart investment, or should this game have been left on the cutting room floor? The answer is complicated.
